Food Combining for Weight Loss

Here are some food combining meals that accelerate weight loss. The science is to re-train insulin sensitivity by forcing your body to use fat for fuel, down-regulate your stress hormone of cortisol which is responsible for belly fat and improves digestion for the purging of fat-binding and excess estrogen-containing molecules.

Breakfast:
Combine Protein with a fat. NO carbohydrate except you can add one of the following: chopped spinach, kale, bell peppers, cucumber.
Here are three variations of the Protein Smoothie, which consists of:
2 tbsp protein powder, 1 level tsp almond butter + 1 cup almond milk
2 tbsp. protein powder + 1 cup almond milk with 1/2 cup of greens like kale or spinach
2 tbsp. protein powder + 1 cup almond milk with 1/2 of a small/medium-sized avocado with 1/2 cup of green vegetable

Other Protein Breakfast Ideas:
Two boiled eggs with peppers and cucumber
Greek yogurt with cinnamon added

LUNCH:
4-6 ounces of fish, chicken, or turkey, NO FAT HERE, add 1/3 cup quinoa with diced peppers, apple, cucumber
4-6 ounces of fish, chicken, or turkey, NO FAT HERE, add medium-size sweet potato with steamed spinach
4-6 ounces of fish, chicken, or turkey, NO FAT HERE, add 2/3 cup of wild rice with steamed bok choh or broccoli

Dinner:
4-6 ounces of protein like salmon, chicken, turkey with fat like 1/2 avocado or tablespoon of shaved almonds or two teaspoons of olive oil with steamed greens, collards, spinach, kale, papers, broccoli

Vegan choices of Protein: Remember that foods that contain dairy and soy in larger amounts can impede hormonal function and thus, weight loss, therefore use them sparingly:
cottage cheese 1/2 cup
veggie burger one small patty
tempeh 3 to 4 ounces
tofu extra firm 3 to 4 ounces
veggie bacon 1 ounce

Most legumes, except for chickpeas and black beans, are not recommended due to their higher levels of estrogen.
Fruits highest on the glycemic index like cherries, mango, papaya,canned fruits, and many more are not recommended.

Other recommendations that accelerate metabolism:
~Adding turmeric to your hot water: Add 1⁄2 teaspoon of organic turmeric powder, one pinch of black pepper
~Drink pour water with apple cider vinegar and add cayenne pepper (optional).
~The greens at the meals are to increase fiber.
~ Lastly, here’s an overnight fat burning beverage after your last meal: 1/2 inch of finely sliced ginger and the juice of one small orange or lemon to hot water. This beverage is designed to be consumed after your last meal.

Water is always essential:
How much water are you drinking daily? Did you know that dehydration gives you the same feelings like hunger, such as a gurgling stomach, a dip in energy, headache, fatigue. Increasing water intake by 54 ounces per day would increase daily caloric burn by approximately 230 calories. Many people do not drink enough water daily.

Keep a journal to track your progress.
You’d be surprised how one can derail when not journaling daily.
